So how many third liners can one team have? Never enough says uberlord Mike Gillis as he has successfully resigned Jannik Hansen, his second RFA in a week (TSN has it too).

Capgeek, who gets the big ol' glove tap because they broke the signing of the contract early this morning, has the contract pegged at $550,000 deal. The deal is also one-way* two way which was a concern for the Dane in this entire process (see here and here). As the Sun notes, his salary will be reduced to $75,000 if he is sent to Manitoba, assuming he passes waivers first.

It also leaves Vancouver with about $2.5 to $3 million left in cap space depending on where you look. Not a great deal left to extend a certain someone and replace a certain missing Swede on the blueline. Couple in the fact Hansen will now join a third line battle with Mason Raymond and Kyle Wellwood, prospects Michael Grabner and Cody Hodgson as well as a potential mix of others like Desbiens, Glass, Pope, Shirokov, Walsky, White and even Schroeder at training camp and something doesn't add up.

He isn't CEO, President, GM and uberlord for nothing folks.

* Thanks to Bitterguy for the heads up.
